Tri-Star: the Morgan three-wheeler

Maybe it's because it makes a noise exactly like those mid-life-crisis Harleys I like so much, but would never admit to - a kind of slow, wet thud of big two-cylinder. A glutinous gargle of V-twin, a sticky, gluey thing that rises to a roar of feline challenge anywhere over 3,000rpm. It might be all over by 5,000rpm, but it doesn't matter. This is basically the soundtrack to Easy Rider without the annoying bike licence.
